I address the parking situation within my description. Stan was well aware that parking was challenging when he booked. If he didn't read my description thoroughly he may have overlooked it. But being a LA resident, especially a downtown resident, he should know how challenging parking can be in this city of 8 Million people!
My neighborhood is diverse, and middle-working class. Not sure how much better Stan would like it to be, but its a great block and very central to all the main areas around LA. In walking distance to 2 metro lines, plenty of diverse restaurants and bars, Korean spas, grocers within walking distance, and etc. Can't get better than that!
So, yes, you get a great deal on a wonderful apartment. And you may have to spend some extra time looking for parking, but that's the only price you pay for visiting the 2nd most populous city in the country. Having a fun and fabulous time in LA...Priceless!
